“Wait for me here!”
Lin Ran shouted. Without waiting for Ye Jin to respond, he rode his sword and rushed in the direction where Liu Hongshan left.
In an instant, Lin Ran crossed ten kilometers and saw Liu Hongshan hovering in the air on the Dragon Roar Dagger from afar. He was even more certain that Liu Hongshan was especially waiting for him.
Lin Ran slowed down and was about to speak when Liu Hongshan asked, “What took you so long?”
Lin Ran couldn’t be bothered to argue with Liu Hongshan. He went straight to the point and asked, “Why are you looking for me?”
Seeing how straightforward Lin Ran was, Liu Hongshan pondered for a moment and said with a smile, “It’s nothing. I just have a small matter that I need your help with.”
Lin Ran raised his eyebrows, and the disdain in his eyes was obvious. “It’s not the first time we’ve known each other. Do you think I’ll believe you?”
“I’m afraid not.”
Liu Hongshan said seriously, “Give me the Sacred Abyss Sword in three days. Don’t fool me with a fake one this time.”
Hearing this request, Lin Ran burst out laughing. He tilted his head and looked at Liu Hongshan as if he was looking at a fool. “Are you crazy? Or do you think I’m crazy? Let’s not talk about whether I can get it or not. Why should I give it to you just because you want it?”
“Because you can’t say no.”
Liu Hongshan shrugged and looked at Lin Ran meaningfully. “As long as you give me the Sacred Abyss Sword, I can tell you a huge secret.”
Afraid that Lin Ran wouldn’t be interested, Liu Hongshan added, “It’s a secret that relates to the foundation of the Great Yong Dynasty.”
As expected, Lin Ran was interested. However, his trust in Liu Hongshan was not enough to make him believe Liu Hongshan just because of a few words.
“Why should I believe you?”
Lin Ran raised his eyebrows and asked, “What if you go back on your word? Since you want my help, you have to show some sincerity, right?”
Liu Hongshan chuckled and nodded. “Tell me, what kind of sincerity do you want?”
“Answer me a question first.”
Lin Ran said slowly, “Previously, you brought Xiao Shun and the others here. What happened after that?”
As soon as he finished speaking, Lin Ran’s eyes turned sharp as he stared at Liu Hongshan’s face, wanting to catch every subtle change of expression on his face.
However, to Lin Ran’s surprise, when Liu Hongshan heard this question, his first reaction was confusion.
“You don’t remember?”
Liu Hongshan frowned and asked tentatively. His eyes narrowed slightly because of his frown, and there was confusion and surprise in his eyes. It was obvious that he was not pretending to be puzzled.
Lin Ran hesitated for a moment and nodded. “I only remember that you wanted to kill my friend. The next thing I saw, I was already in the sky.”
Liu Hongshan was even more confused. His eyes flickered for a moment before he suddenly thought of something and looked at Lin Ran. “Do you still have Black Shadow?”
Hearing Liu Hongshan ask about Black Shadow, Lin Ran subconsciously touched the wooden box on his back. “Why are you asking this? Don’t tell me you want to take it back?”
Liu Hongshan waved his hand and changed the topic. “Do you really not remember anything after that? Not even the slightest bit?”
Lin Ran looked at Liu Hongshan speechlessly. “If I remembered it, why would I ask you?”
Liu Hongshan muttered and nodded, as if he had understood something. However, he didn’t answer Lin Ran. Instead, he changed the topic and asked, “Have you heard of the Heart Cleansing Array?”
“Heart Cleansing Array?”
Lin Ran’s eyes flickered because he had really heard of this thing before. To be precise, he had “seen it”. According to the record in the Ten Miles Sword God’s letter, this was an array formation used to assist in cultivation.
The origin of the Heart Cleansing Array was unknown, but until now, many sects were still using it. This was because it was very difficult for martial artists who had just entered the sect to clear their minds of distracting thoughts. Master would use this array to help them clear their minds.
However, when Lin Ran saw this part, he had already entered the Grandmaster Realm. The effect of this array was minimal to him, so he didn’t study it too much.
Seeing that Lin Ran had heard about it, Liu Hongshan paused for a moment and continued, “Then you still remember that when we were in the forest, I said that I absorbed the killing intent in your body, right?”
Lin Ran nodded. Then, he suddenly thought of something and his expression changed slightly. “At that time, you used the Heart Cleansing Array to calm me down?”
Liu Hongshan shrugged noncommittally. Lin Ran immediately looked regretful. If he could think of using the Heart Cleansing Array back then, he would not have rushed to the Great Yong Dynasty so impatiently.
The Heart Cleansing Array could at least calm him down so that he could make some arrangements before leaving.
“It’s all because of being influenced by the empress. In the future, I have to think twice before doing something.”
Lin Ran thought to himself, but he didn’t show it on his face. He continued to look at Liu Hongshan and asked, “But the Heart Cleansing Array can only suppress the killing intent in my heart for the time being. It can’t make me lose my memory, right?”
“Your loss of memory has nothing to do with the Heart Cleansing Array”
Liu Hongshan nodded in agreement. Then, he said hesitantly, “As for the reason why you lost your memory… I can only say that those killing intents are the culprit.”
Lin Ran nodded. He could accept this explanation. “So what happened during that time?”
“You went berserk and we got into a fight.”
Liu Hongshan spread out his hands and said before Lin Ran could question him, “I know this sounds unconvincing, but nothing special really happened at that time. I advise you to ask something else. Don’t waste this chance.”
Lin Ran smacked his lips and didn’t say anything. Actually, even if Liu Hongshan didn’t say anything, he could tell that nothing special had happened after gaining his consciousness.
The reason why he asked was because he wanted to find out why he would lose memory. It was because it didn’t happen just once.
After Lin Ran put an interlayer on the wooden box last night, he fell asleep for no reason. Although he was indeed a little tired at that time, it wasn’t to the extent that he would pass out right?
According to Liu Hongshan, he lost his memory because his consciousness was invaded by the killing intent. However, Lin Ran did not feel any killing intent last night. What caused him to lose his memory?
After thinking for a while, Lin Ran still couldn’t come up with something. At least he knew that the loss of his memory last night had nothing to do with killing intent. After all, no one in Ye Jin’s family knew how to activate the Heart Cleansing Array.
After asking what he wanted, Lin Ran was no longer in the mood to continue chatting. He turned to look at Liu Hongshan and said nonchalantly, “I have nothing else to ask. Why don’t you tell me about what you are up to? If what you said interests me, I can consider helping you.”
Liu Hongshan smiled bitterly. In the end, he sighed helplessly. “Let me tell you another secret of the Iron City. This secret will definitely make your jaw drop.”
